With the big game coming up between the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings on Christmas Eve day at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis, Minn., Soldiers from D Battery, 216th Air Defense Artillery Regiment, headquartered in Monticello, Minn., took the opportunity to don hats donated by Minnesota-based discount grocery chain Cub Foods and record a holiday greeting to their favorite team. Fans arriving at the Metrodome will receive similar hats as they arrive at the game. The taped greeting will be shown on the Metrodomes Jumbotron during the game Dec. 24. The Vikings (8-6) and the Packers (8-6) are tied for the NFC?s North Division lead, with only two games remaining in the regular season. D Battery deployed to Baghdad with the Washington-based 81st Brigade Combat Team, and has been attached to the 4th Battalion, 5th Air Defense Regiment of the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division.
